New York Oilheat-Realty Partnership Program
The New York Oil Heating Association (NYOHA) reaches out to Metropolitan Area real estate professionals through the New York Oilheat-Realty Partnership Program. Our goal is to equip agents, brokers and home inspectors with accurate information that they can share with clients. Through the Realty program, NYOHA aims to preserve Bioheat® fuel market share and promote successful sales of Bioheated properties.
Bioheat® fuel is the best fuel for heating, but even informed real estate professionals can use help. We want to raise the level of comfort with Bioheat® fuel, so we provide important resources like online information and informative brochures. We also sponsor free breakfast seminars that help Realtors® become effective advocates for Bioheat® fuel.
Many Years of Building Success
Hundreds of New York City real estate professionals are better prepared to sell the Bioheated properties that make up one-third of the city's housing stock, thanks to their work with the New York City Oilheat-Realty Partnership Program. The group has served hundreds of Realtors® and home inspectors with free breakfast seminars, newsletters, Web-based resources, consultations, service calls and more.
Real estate pros who have taken advantage of program resources are sold on the Partnership's value to them and their colleagues. Damien Moody, of Coldwell Banker in Fresh Meadows, attended a recent Partnership seminar. "Very informative," he said of the presentation. "I would recommend that every real estate professional attend this seminar."
The Partnership also establishes connections so that real estate professionals and Bioheat® fuel retailers can get acquainted. That way, brokers, agents and home inspectors know whom to call when they need a tank measurement, emergency service or help with a home inspection.
